Audrina Patridge: Dishes on Tonight's Tango and Her Sprained Ankle

Audrina Patridge set a personal record by wowing the "Dancing With the Stars" judges and getting a 26 on last Monday's episode. Now, with another week of competition underway, Patridge says she's working harder than ever to make sure last week's waltz wasn't the last for her and partner Tony Dovolani.
"More hard work and dedication! We are working on the Argentine tango this week, and it's sensual and complicated," Audrina told MTV News in an e-mail about what to expect from Monday night's (October 11) episode. "I'm giving it 150 percent because I'm determined to maintain, or beat, our scores from last week. [Fans] should expect to see me and Tony doing a very fun tango. I can't reveal the song or my costume just yet — but you'll love it."
The former "Hills" star pointed out that love from the judges doesn't mean she's resting on her laurels. "Yes, [I'm] a little [nervous]. I would hate to [regress]. After seeing those double 9's, I got a taste of victory and I liked it!" she joked. "It's crazy because I have been hosting, an online talent competition, for the past year and I totally understand what it's like to compete now."
Patridge may have another reason to be nervous, however: She's battling a minor injury.
"I sprained my ankle last week, so I have been trying to elevate and ice it when I can and be extra careful not to further injure myself," she explained. "Right now, I'm just pushing past the pain, because I want to win! I can't afford to miss out on any rehearsals at this point."
Audrina, who said she's most excited to learn the samba this season, also revealed she's making new friends among her "DWTS" castmates.
"I see Jennifer Grey and Bristol Palin a lot. We seem to be on a similar rehearsal schedule," she said. "They are both so sweet. Jennifer gives me tons of great advice — she really is such a nurturing person. I love her. Bristol is very sweet too. She's really coming out of her shell, and learning how to be a performer. I love watching each of them perform every week," Patridge continued. "Also, all of the dancers on this show are so amazing. I'm really just lucky to be surrounded by such a great, inspiring group."

Lauren Conrad Covers Teen Vogue November 2010

Lauren Conrad channels her inner 1950s good-girl in this new shot from the November 2010 issue of Teen Vogue.
The 24-year-old reality star and author dished to the mag about her new show, her new clothing line, Paper Crown, and her The Hills history. Check it:
On leaving the past in the past: “Everyone’s busy, and they live their own lives. I think what we really had in common was the show. Being on a show like that is a lot more than people think. You’re thrust into the spotlight. There’s all this pressure to act a certain way. It’s hard to adjust. You have to decide early on whether or not you’re willing to do that.”
On her new reality series: “It’s not going to revolve around my personal life. Filming the last two shows [The Hills, Laguna Beach], I never had the opportunity to show everything I was working for. This time the focus is going to be on my job, and while that’s still personal to me, I will also have a part of my life that can be mine.”

On her new line, Paper Crown: “It’s the idea of creating your own glamour. The focus will be on really great fits, fabrics, and details. It won’t be overly trendy—nothing that’s trying too hard. I’m very excited about it, but I’m also a little nervous. I’m doing it all on my own this time.”

Brody Jenner & Avril Lavigne: Shopping at Kitson and Dinner at Taverna Tony

Spending the day alongside one another, Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner have recently shut down all rumors claiming troubled waters when it comes to their relationship.
The former "Hills" star and his "Sk8er Boi" singing girlfriend kicked off their weekend by doing a little shopping at the Kitson store in the Malibu Country Mart on Saturday (October 9).
Both dressed ultra-casually, Brody and Avril later filled up on grub as they popped into the always-popular Taverna Tony to cap off the evening.
Said to be on a break after Brody was a no-show at Avril's Las Vegas birthday bash, the twosome have since been inseparable as they head towards Jenner's rumoured dream - marriage and a happy and prosperous life together.
